“A museum of past glory ...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

When seen on the web sounded to be the perfect deal ...
In fact does need a real and serious refreshing and as of today it is to avoid in hot summer days as without air conditioning, you are cooked like a hummer the whole night if not refreshing with the shower each 2-3 hours ...
Breakfast is very good and the service people very nice.

I spent there just one night (luckily). I found this hotel on the web and it seemed it was a good one, but I was wrong. Aloof treatment, poor room, even if quite large. For the price they demanded, I expected more.

Beautiful dining room and an excellent breakfast. Reception dark and dingy, receptionist friendly but not very "switched on" - initial "no you have no reservation", five minutes later "I found your reservation". Room dingy and uncared for - previous occupants wrappers left in bathroom. A good walk into town, town nice if hilly. We will not be going back, even for an overnight stay.

I chose this hotel in Orsay, near Paris, only for it's location: Closeby, there is a nearby bus station (near the station "Le Guichet") from where I could take a bus to the CEA Headquarters in Saclay and from where one also can travel by train to the airport of Orly.
From the outside, it doesn't look very promising, but inside everything looks nice and well maintained. The reception could have been friendlier.
My room was small and simple but the bathroom was apparently renovated not long ago. The surroundings are very quiet and also during the night everything was calm and quiet. It was possible to sleep with open window. The breakfast was suprisingly good for a 2 star hotel and the breakfast room was nicely decorated. So, one gets good value for the money (78.5 Euro, inclusive breakfast). Further, there was also free internet, which I always appreciate a lot.
Restaurants are difficult to find near the hotel. I found some near the nearby RER station ("Le Guichet").

Room Tip: On the highest floor (4), you have a nice view.

I stayed here for a week while working at the École Polytechnique nearby. The room was surprisingly spacious for a budget French hotel. The room was clean but the hotel felt rather dated. There was only a single electrical socket in the room and the desk was too small to work at. Internet was patchy with tight usage limitations (200 MB/day). Toiletries were rarely replaced. No tea- or coffee-making facilities were provided. The curtains were slightly too small to block out light from the windows.
I stayed here to avoid staying at the École's guesthouse again, and to be closer to the RER. In retrospect, it was not worth the long walk each day and the extra cost.

My room was a little bit dark with old fashioned furniture. However it was clean.
I also had no problems with the staff. They were friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was nothing special but offers more than cafe au lait, croissants and jam. The hotel is at walking distance from the RER station and the University of Paris Sud. They have special rates for people visiting the University.

Only choice within walking distance of the university. Cleaniness was better than expected from the other reviews, however the room and bathroom both were not really clean. Also the room was a bit worn. The staff at the front desk was quite indifferent most of the time. Orsay is a nice small quiet town but it is a bit of a walk there. There are not too many restaurants, I would also recommend Le Gramophone.
